Christmas Crafting Inspiration with Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi friends.  Bonnie here today from Make Time to Craft to share a beautiful Christmas card featuring one of my favorite dies from the July Cheery Lynn Designs release.  I'm kicking off a week full of Christmas ideas, so let's get started.

It's mid-October, so you know what that means....  
Time to get those Christmas cards and projects going so you are not scrambling last minute (like last year, right??).  This week the Design Team from Cheery Lynn Designs is going to showcase all of their favorite Christmas themed dies to get you motivated to get started with your own projects.  Head on over to Cheery Lynn Designs and take a look at the Christmas section to see all the fabulous dies that are available.
This card showcases the beautiful Christmas Wreath die set

My card is a 5-1/2" square card and I do have several layers including a pretty white mulberry paper layer at the bottom.  The inner white square that I placed the wreath on measures 3-1/2" x 3-1/2".  That is layered on red and I trimmed a small border.  Below that you can see the Square Frame die in green which is mounted on a 4-1/8" square of white cardstock.
I cut the wreath in emerald, dark green, and gold cardstock and then layered them all for added dimension.  I then cut some berries from red cardstock and added them throughout the wreath.  I topped it off with a pretty gold jingle bell and bow.  The corners are adorned with holly in red and green.

Cheery Lynn Dies used:
I topped my card off with a pretty bi-color bow made with ribbons and an embellishment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Be sure to stop back each day through October 21st for more Christmas inspiration from the design team.
